Coach Marian Vajda says it is now easier to work with Novak Djokovic as the 32-year-old Serb is now more emotionally stable on the court and his confidence is sky high. Djokovic, who returned to world No. 1 this Monday, captured his record eighth Australian Open title on Sunday after coming from two sets to one down to beat Austria's Dominic Thiem in the final.
Vajda, who started coaching Djokovic for the first time in 2006, briefly split with the 17-time Grand Slam champion in 2017 but returned to the Serb's coaching staff a year later. "In the past it was kind of more difficult with him to work because he was sometimes unpredictable and emotional a little bit.
But now I think he is more stable and knows what he wants and you can see in his game, he is quite confident," coach Vajda exclusively told Ravi Ubha in Melbourne. Djokovic has had an outstanding start to the season as he also led Serbia to winning the title at the inaugural ATP Cup.
